pizzette recipe

Here I am, as I promised with the recipe of "pizzette"

360 gr all purpose flour
18 gr fresh yeast
200 ml warm water (not hot!)
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl mix the water, the olive oil, the yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix well till all ingredients melt
Add 200 gr of flour and mix well untill you get a smooth mixture. Cover with a towel and leave in for about 45 min at room temperature.
Add the rest 180 gr of flour and mix well using your hands, untill you dough is not sticky any more. If needed, add some more flour. Make a ball and cover it with a wet towel. Leave it in the refrigerator for 1 hr ( the most you can leave it until you are ready to use it is 24 hrs)
Divide your dough into 8 little pieces and make 8 pizzette using a pizza roler

For the filling

The are so many ideas !! Use your imagination and choose the ingredients you like most.
Here I give you the basic tomato-mozzarella recipe, a sure one to be loved!!!

500gr tomatoes
2 garlic gloves cut in small pieces
half onion cut in small pieces
olive oil
fresh basil leaves cut in small pieces
8 slices of mozzarella for pizza, or 1 fresh mozzarella , drained and thinly sliced

Heat the olive oil in a sauce pan. Add the tomatoes, garlic and onion and cook in medium heat for 3-4 min. Add the sugar and leave them to cook in slow heat for about 7 min. Add the basil leaves , season and salt

Add the tomato sauce in every piece of pizza, cover with the cheese.
Bake in preheated oven (250 o C) for about 7 min.

As I told you yesterday, you can make you own pizzette using the ingredients you prefer.
Yesterday I was in the mood to try a different flavor, so I made few potato-sausage-rosemarine- parmesan pizzette.
They were delicious!!
Here are the ingredients you neeed.
1potato cut in little pieces
half onion cut in thin slices
2 50 gr italian sausage
parmesan flakes
olive oil

In a sauce pan heat the olive oil. Cook the sausage and potato pieces for about 4 min. Add the onion and cook them all till the onion starts to colour. Remove them from the heat. Fill the pizzette with the potato-onion-sausage mixture, cover with parmesan cheeese, sprinkle over the rosemarine and bake as above!
